This was my fourth year offering mini sessions for my clients to get beautiful, updated photos for their holiday cards. Typically, I do the sessions in September/October, but because of baby #2’s due date, I had to move this year’s mini sessions up to late August. I am so thankful that these families embraced this timing!
My favorite part about mini sessions is catching up with familiar faces. Seeing how much the little ones have changed since I saw them last. But this year was a little different for me- there were an equal number of brand new families as familiar faces! I’ve poured so much of my heart into re-building my business in a new city and seeing new families [friends of existing clients] come to me for photos makes me ECSTATIC!
Anyway, enough gushing. Time to recap my favorite photos.
The day began with some of my ‘eastside clients’, at a gorgeous park in Kirkland. I first met little Scarlett (3 months) and her parents. Love the way Mom coordinated their colorful outfits!
Then I was joined by Scarlett’s friends, Brynn & Ella. I first met Brynn while she was waiting for baby sister to arrive. It was so much fun to meet the ‘new’ little one (already 5 months old!)
The rest of my mini sessions were done in my own ‘hood, West Seattle. First I caught up with my buddies Claire (3) & Henry (1.5). Oh, and their older pup-sister tagged along this time!
Next I met little Keller (1) & Declan (3). There’s a long story behind how this family came to be in front of my camera. It started about four years ago when I worked with the aunt of these little cuties (they weren’t even born yet!) and heard stories of a ‘sister who lives in Seattle.’ A couple moves across the country (for us AND them) and here we are! Now, if we can just convince Auntie to move here…
Then I met little Seamus (4). This kid’s smile? I mean c’mon… save some cute for the rest of the world, please.
And I wrapped it all up with Buddy (2) and his ‘new’ sister Joey (already 8 months). The last time I saw Buddy he was dressed up for Halloween [he won the cutest costume contest!] so it was fun to meet his little sister and see how much he’s grown. Sure enough, he’s kept his flirtatious attitude!
Whew! That sure was a lot of cute!
Thanks again to all these amazing families for your support of Miss Freddy!!
